    I'm upfront when I get stopped. Its required by law. By the time the officer steps to the window, I've got my CC card and DL out in my hand with both hands at 10 and 2 on the steering wheel and the window down, engine off.
    Only happened three times in the last 10 years or so. I've got a lead foot and deserved all the tickets, so can't be mad at getting one.
    The OHP in all cases ask where the weapons are located and I tell them. The first stop back in Tx county in the panhandle, the trooper asked me to remove my pistol before going back to his vehicle. I politely refused because a dash cam could show me reaching for a weapon. No issue, sat in the vehicle and we talked. He saw my competition USPSA membership card when I had my wallet out and said he was a member as well. AWESOME!! I might get out of this one. Nope. LOL.
    The other two speeding stops were non-events. One with an AR in the back seat openly displayed. Nothing was said about it.

    That's classic! Dennis, I used to think of speeding tickets as a speed tax.

    America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.

    I got caught in one of those inspection stops. Trooper walked up to window, I had hands 10 and 2 and told him I had gun in console. He said no problem and asked me for license and insurance card. He said have a good day.

    funny vid. I got pulled over earlier this spring, the first time since I got my CCL. I was on my way home from my buddy's after a weekend of hog hunting. I had two empty ARs in the back seat and CCW in the console. I COMPLETELY FORGOT about my carry weapon or to show the Deputy my license. I was so worried about getting a ticket, because I was going WAY faster than I should have.

    I had 10 and 2 on the wheel, ignition off, tranny in park. I only took my hands off the wheel when he asked for documents. I was super respectful and didn't argue. When I got a written warning I could have cried, I was going 90 in a 65 and I should have gotten hammered on that one. It wasn't until I pulled away that I remembered my CCL and my concealed weapon in the console, I had a slight pucker moment.

    I had it all planned out in my head ever since I got my CCL 5 years ago how I would conduct myself if I were stopped, hand the officer my DL and CCL. Give the officer the option to retrieve the CCW if he needed to see it, etc. That all went out the window and I messed it all up. lol. I think I got lucky

    After Nov 1, you won't need a CC license anymore, but if you travel to states that honor an Oklahoma CC license, you will still have to have the permit to carry in those states.


    Check the link below for a map of states that honor Oklahoma CC.

    Wyoming is constitutional carry and has been for awhile now. Still costs $65 for a permit which I'll have to get in order to travel out of state. I wished OK would do non-resident as I still have a few years left on mine.

    Just an FYI here is a GREAT book worth getting if you travel a lot and carry. I've had several additions of this. Its called the Travelers Guide to the Firearms Laws of the 50 States.
